I am super excited to have one of my poems in Amaryllis today. My huge thanks go out to editor, Stephen Daniels!
What an introduction! I am so proud to be a part of the kind of Literary collective that produces writing like this. An Exquisitely Beautiful piece!
Rose-gold sunbeams set the autumn trees ablaze
Under skies consumed by the pouring rain
My mind caught in a silver haze
I search for glimpses in the rearview mirror
And hold open the palms of my hand out the window
Hoping to catch drops of nostalgia
That quench my soul like water
I see drive by memories
Strewn apart by the wind
And buried deep in muddy waters
They swirl apart the tattered pages in my mind
But dissipate quickly on the tongue
I try to capture phantoms in a glass bottle
But memories are not wine
They don’t get richer as they age
They haunt me
And as seasons die
I try to dig up their bodies
